About the Lake

  • Location

    Located on the Wabash River in eastern Huntington County, J. Edward Roush Lake and Fish and Wildlife area offer outstanding boating, hunting, fishing, camping, and other outdoor recreation activities. The lake is located 3 miles southeast of Huntington, Ind., 20 miles southwest of Fort Wayne, and is about a 100-mile drive from Indianapolis. J. Edward Roush Lake operates primarily as flood control. It works in conjunction with Salamonie and Mississinewa lakes to control the Upper Wabash River Basin. Originally called Huntington Lake, the dam and lake were renamed to honor retired representative J. Edward Roush, who was instrumental in obtaining funding for the lake.
